Really majestic sunset! A great shot from a great magic moment!

Ian Stehbens on February 25, 2008

It was great to stand there and watch. We had seen the sunset before but as we climbed out of the valley back up on to the divide and this opened up for us.

As I have lived at a much lower latitude (27º) than this, I normally expect the sun to set quite vertically, and was delighted to watch it roll down the mountainside at the lower trajectory of a higher latitude (55º) in summer. Interesting phenomena, plenty of magic as it played with the sea fog that was beginning to make her appearance.

Thanks for your response, Alberto.

Thanks David. We had followed the sunset for a while. At this point we had just climbed back up another range to see it all again. Warmest regards from Brisbane.

You get some very nice sunsets in Ireland, very cool picture, good work!

Ian Stehbens on July 25, 2014

You sure do, Steve. The long summer evenings and the oceanic air together give some distinctiveness to Ireland's sunsets...not forgetting Iceland's eruptions. Thanks for the compliment.
